Re: Newbie question : compiling XFree 4.1.0
You can get the sources:
apt-get source xfree86
dpkg-buildpackage -uc -b
This should compile the whole xfree package. You may need to install some
other packages too. Look at the debian/control and debian/rules files.
To get the sources you need to add the debian sources in your
deb-src debian location
like the deb debian location.
and then apt-get update
